About Best Lawyers in America
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers in America has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because its research is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast over four million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in the guide is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers in America "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
